I am a big fan of diwali. This diwali I invited about a 100 persons from 12 different countries to celebrate diwali. However what really amazed me is that while I could throw such a lavish dinner and enjoy the festivities, my friends at IIM-L could not. They have to write an exam on the next day and what is worse is that this exam is on the morning of a Sunday.
I agree when we sign up for a course at IIM, we practically write off all our vacations and free time. However keeping an exam on a Sunday morning is like being sadist. Who will teach our professors the meaning of “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”

Its not sadism, its a part of how studies take place in India.
Too much importance is given to exams and less on the application of what we learn. Unfortunate but true.
well it does destroy our indian culture… and does not achieve any good…
how cool it would be if students are actually given time to celebrate the festival.
